Lin needs to cut down on the turnovers. Some of them were awfully careless, and a PG has to be able to handle fullcourt pressure. He made some bad decisions tonight. Granted, he may just be gassed, but turnovers have been a huge problem for him.

LOL.... Well Miami put Lin in the "torture chamber" tonight. Gave him a real taste of playoff-calibre basketball against a top-tier team. It'll be good for the kid though. He should learn from it and come back stronger after the break. If I were the Knicks I'd be more concerned about J.R. Smith and Steve Novak looking better than Melo and Amare.

Hell of a game from the big 3 and "Mr. Scrub" Joel Anthony.

I think Lin might rise to the challenge, but Lebron is not an idiot for suggesting he could guard a PG.
Ahem... I think somebody owes you an apology...hahahaha

You'll have to torture me to get it though..hahah

Last nights game was an interesting insight in how Lin's going to handle high pressure games. I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say the Knicks make the playoffs, it'll be interesting to see how he does with that kind of pressure on him.

But damnnnnn, he has to do something about those TO's.

hopefully this game will be a blessing in disguise allowing all the "linsanity" to die down and he can just go out and play ball. and theres nothing that can replace in-game experience and he's never seen anything like the heats defence last night. when the heat want to make any one player their focal point from their defensive stand point, that player is going to get shut down, i don't care who you are

This won't make it die down, it'll just add fuel to the fire in a different way. Critics will be scrutinizing him over his game, its going to be a while before linsanity dies down.

Yep. The Heat are going to win the title because of that D. I honestly don't see anyone in the EC challenging them at all... maybe OKC or SA (if healthy) will give them a run in the finals.

They rotate faster than any team I've ever seen.

Sports has intersected with the same sorts of principles as reality-tv. And as much as I enjoyed reality-tv at first, it all makes me crazy now. What can ya do is exactly right. It can't be escaped. Although becoming a monk is starting to look pretty attractive to me. Can I be a monk and still download porn?

There's no escaping fairy tales anymore than it's possible to escape fake reality. I've already been there and done that with being a recluse pondering alternate realities in the multiverse that is necessary to explain dark energy while foregoing the idea of knowable fundamental principles. There's an infinite range of fairy tales to choose from, whether they come from an imagination suffering from a particular delusion or folded within the many extra dimensions posited by string theory, and meditating on what it is to be human with regular breaks for porn seems like an okay way to pass the days.

Given what he's done over his last 10 games or so why WOULDN'T you prepare for Lin and trap him? Would be silly not to IMO... He's clearly been the engine that's been running the Knicks over this recent span.

So the fortune cookie is offensive? Should i have objected when i got a bunch of them with my takeout? Whoa - what am i saying? I got takeout chinese food? Let me apologize for that.

What about the lychee? Why isn't that a problem?
